Screaming at Chuckwalla

It is a safe bet that NASA Arizona Regional Director Tage Evanson’s racecar is the only Honda Civic classed in ST2 in any NASA region in the country. We know of no other Civic classed that high in the Super Touring series, and this video shows just how quick it is in Evanson’s hands.
Chuckwalla is a hugely entertaining track, with great flow and lots of high-g-force turns. If you don’t believe us, just watch the dirt on the passenger side floor. It’s almost as good as the g meter in your data system.
Evanson did go on to take the ST2 win in this race, which was a nice follow-up to his second-place finish in ST2 the day before. Enjoy.

NASA Arizona Super Touring Kicks Off 2022 at Wild Horse Pass

NASA Arizona opened the racing season at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park’s East Track, a 1.25-mile test track once heavily used by IndyCar teams for testing. Running alongside Interstate 10 in Phoenix, the 10-turn course offers some great racing opportunities and challenging braking zones. With cool Arizona-in-January temperatures, 28 super touring racers lined up on the grid for action!
In Super Touring, the top qualifiers were as follows:
ST3 Ken Orgeron 59.354
ST2 Tage Evanson 59.849
ST3 Alex Petitdemange 1:00.335
ST2 Chris Wynne 1:00.363
ST4 Ricky Johnson 1:01.622
ST3 Brian Turner 1:01.659
ST6 racer positions were determined from a preceding Spec Miata race result, doubling-dipping races to satisfy their wild wheel to wheel cravings!
The stage was set, with new and old racers joining the fray, from longtime NASA Arizona members Jon Rook and Ravi Tomerlin, to new racers Dylan Pemberton and Jake Cooper. When the race kicked off, immediately the front cars went to work to build a


Hooning at Inde Motorsports Ranch

Here’s one from a track we don’t get to see much of, and it’s a hoot to watch. Racing his Nissan GT-R, Wes Hanson leads Jeremy Croiset at Inde Motorsports Ranch in his NP01 EVO last spring. The two cars couldn’t be more different in terms of where they excel on the track, but they both eventually catch up to NASA Arizona Regional Director Tage Evanson in his Honda Civic, which is probably one of, if not the, fastest in the country. Hanson gets around Evanson and Croiset, whose lap times were about a second quicker, and goes on to take the ST2 and overall win.
